Actress/model Elizabeth Hurley has confirmed she briefly split from cricket legend Shane Warne before realising he is her perfect man.
The Austin Powers star began dating Aussie Warne in 2010 following the breakdown of her marriage to Arun Nayar, and the couple got engaged late last year (11).
They are adamant their fairytale romance is a match made in heaven - but now Hurley has confirmed rumours the couple split for a short time before rekindling the relationship.
Asked during an interview for Hello! magazine whether reports of a split were true, Hurley replies, "Yes, but ultimately we decided we got on too well not to give it a shot."
Warne adds, "As Elizabeth said, yes, we did briefly (split up), but we realised that what we had was special."
